Mark Buckley Awarded URCCMBM Pilot Grant

April 7, 2014

Department of Biomedical Engineering Assistant Professor Mark Buckley was awarded a pilot grant from the University of Rochester Core Center for Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine (URCCMBM) for his research in collaboration with A. Samuel Flemister from the Department of Orthopaedics and Mike Richards from the Department of Surgery. This grant will support their research to improve treatment for insertional Achilles tendinopathy (IAT), a common and painful disease that resists standard forms of non-operative care.

The URCCMBM provides shared facilities and services to groups of established, currently funded investigators addressing scientific problems in musculoskeletal biology and medicine, in order to improve efficiency, accelerate the pace of research, and ensure greater productivity.
